strong budget that balances in ten years. >> paul ryan's budget this week is coming under criticism for using fuzzy math repeals obama care but then uses the revenue that it would generate. he uses revenue from unspecified tax reform and doesn't identify single loophole in there that you would close. how is this honest accounting and how does this help lend legitimacy to the budget process that many americans feel has become kind of a farce? >> there are no budget gimmicks. in fact it's not our numbers that we're using. there's an independent referee that scores everybody's budget. they score our budget, the president's budget which doesn't exist yet but when he files it they will score that. in our budget they actually score the house budget to balance in ten years. and what paul does, a budget doesn't actually implement tax reform. it calls for tax reform. it calls on the various committees of jurisdiction to do certain things. we'll be calling on our natural resources and energy and commerce committee to increase energy production for example. that doesn't say exactly how to do i

out there. paul ryan thinks, understandably because it is his plan, thinks it is the best one. >> the goal the republican majority is to get us on a path to balanced budget to put the debt crisis out and borrow time with the bond markets. yes, i believe the president won't pass our budget into law but let's get a down payment and get a good start on the problem. that to me a constructive bipartisan engagement can accomplish. bill: with that as a baseline kelly wright live at the white house this morning a lot of talk about a grand bargain, is that being revived, kelly? >> reporter: seems to be the case right now, bill, but reality while people are hoping for it including house speaker john boehner he is not very optimistic at all that democrats and republicans can achieve a grand bargain on the nation's budget deal. having said that, you will recall that the president did launch a major charm offensive, reaching out to republicans and democrats to find some common ground, in getting america's fiscal house in order. but some republicans remain skeptical about the president's si
in the house are saying the debt is no immediate crisis. well, you go nuts, because john baner and paul ryan just proved it. they're not only ryan rhinos on the cries but they're in bed with the president ignores this constitutional crisis. mark is on the phone with us right now. what do you make of this? >> it is extremely frustrating if you're an average citizen watching this. last year when you count fiscal operating debt and unfund liabilities, it wasn't 1.2 trillion. it was 6.9 trillion being spent we don't have. and even hear something pundits circling the wagons saying this isn't a fiscal debt crisis yet. what dot we have to do become cypress or greece for people to recognize this? we have tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded entitlement obligations. even the ryan budget does nothing with respect to social security. on obamacare, in the ryan budget takes the taxes and repealing obamacare. what is happening is the complete integrity of our financial system is being called into question. we have the fed printing day and night to provide the monetary support for these fiscal polici

republicans. when you have speaker boehner, and paul ryan, saying, there is not an immediate debt crisis. what do you make of that? >> well, you know, i don't know, i think there is. i think it is a -- >> what is in it f them to say there isn't? >> you know, i can't get into their brain, i do not know what that is about. i do know $16.7 trillion debt, growing at the rate of the deficit every year, is a big problem. >> so they see, they say -- i want to stress it is a big problem, but not an immediate crisis, di does that take the urgency off of addressing it? >> no, it does not, what business, what investment and capital is looking for is they are looking for tre deccability -- predictabilitiy and stannability, which they see the movement going on in the debt itself, that offers neither. >> when you and the governors met with the president, a weeks ago, and you talk, i think you were knee deep in the whole sequestration debate. and president's warning that disaster is coming. >> that was the story. neil: and i thought to myself, governor, i mean, holy cow. however onurus the cuts would be, the
: the house budget committee chairman paul ryan says he thinks president's trip to capitol hill to meet with republicans is a good start but he thinks the bipartisan spirit needs to last through summer at least if any problems are going solved. >> gregg: a lot has been said about the approaching $17 trillion in debt. how much of that debt factoring into the negotiations if f at all? >> reporter: a little bit. we got one text from dick durbin what the president meant when he said there is no immediate debt prices. >> we need to put americans back to work. that is our first priority. deficit reduction is second priority and one is coupled with economic growth. so i think we can do both. make sure we have deficit reduction but don't cut too much too fast. >> reporter: the speaker boehner says known the national debt will reach crisis level but because of that uncertainty action should be taken now before it is too late. >> gregg: the president said it was $9 trillion as the crisis and now he says it is not even though it's approaching $17 trillion. >> heather: new reaction to a guilty verd
to have to cut kids, cut kids. that's not what paul ryan's budget does, but listen to the democrats the rhetoric, propaganda, misinformation and frankly the lies they continue to tell. let's roll this tape. >> you look at his principles, you look at his vision and they're a nightmare for america, he wants americans to work until they die. he wants poor people who get sick not to be able to see a doctor and not to get the care he needs. not to get better, he wants them to die. >> this is the alternative to balance, it results in unfair tax hikes on middle class americans and results in undue burden on middle class americans through the cuts envisioned. >> this republican budget once again makes an ideological, uncompromising approach to addressing that budget challenge. >> perhaps the best thing i can tell you about the republican budget is that here we go again. >> yesterday americans got their first look at this year's ryan republican budget. turns out it it looks like last year's ryan republican budget and it wasn't the only one. i wasn't the only one that said, gee-whiz, not agai
these days. they're going to go with it, they're going to make it work. and for paul ryan to be fighting that battle all over again -- after it was sort of was at the core of the 2012 election, some might argue it's what helped the president win re-election. they're going to argue that again? why? and the president will, will fight to defend medicare. he will fight to defend medicaid. because they're crucial to obama care. now james said i don't know why he's cutting medicare. there are going to be some strategic cuts around the borders. but the president is not going to give up on medicare and he's not going to give up on medicaid. and that was really what the 2012 election in terms of domestic policy was really all about. >> james, is this terrible strategy for the republican party in the long-term? >> i cannot believe that it's four and a half months after the election and they haven't sort of public strategic debate among each other and they're all sort of out there attacking each other. i've been around politics for a long time and a lot of people on this panel, i've been through a
of representative paul ryan's budget. he's putting forth the same thing that lost in the election, the cpac people are basically saying for the most part, for the most part, actually rand paul was one of the more interesting and disruptive characters there intellectually. >> disruptive? >> well, disruptive in the sense that he was willing to take up -- ask some fundamental questions about things, about privacy, about banks being too big to fail. he doesn't fit directly into the traditional mode. but most of the speakers, including marco rubio were saying, hey, there's nothing wrong with our message. our message is just fine. on the social issues, on every issue. as a matter of fact, rubio didn't even mention immigration, which i think is fascinating since that was his original calling card. at cpac, he strictly hit every traditional red button and did it in a traditional way and got a lot of applause for it. that's sort of the mentality of cpac. i've covered cpac for many, many years back in the day, it was a pretty serious in kind wonkish exercise intellectual debate. it really isn't that for the

the paul ryan budget would do but making sure it survives for generations to come. putting revenues on the table that are fair and won't penalize the working people across america and making sure it is a balanced approach. i think what bob corker just said from his side is a basic principles that both parties can rally around. >> chris: and real specifically because i want to pin you down on this, are you saying you would accept structuralle chains, not doing away with medicare but structural changes and cuts to entitlements? >> let me tell you in 10-12 years medicare goes broke. that unanswered questions unanswered questions acceptable. the paul ryan voucher aapproach is destructive of medicare. there are ways to approach it to reduce the cost of medical care and still keep our promise to seniors across america. >> chris: part of the problem in the debate is that the parties seem to be disagreeing about the importance of dealing with our national debt. i want to play what president obama said this week and also what he said back as a candidate in 2008. take a look. >> we don't have

, not eliminating medicare, as i'm afraid the paul ryan budget would do but making sure it will survive for generations to come and putting revenues on the table that are fair and will not penalize the working people across america and making sure it is a balanced approach. i think what bob corker said from his side is a basic set of principles, that both parties can rally around. >> chris: and, real specifically because i want to pin you done on this: are you saying you would accept structural changes -- as you say, not doing away with medicare but structural changes and cuts to entitlements. >> let me tell you what we are facing in ten, 12 years, medicare goes broke. that is unacceptable. we want to make sure that medicare is there for generations to come. and, that means making some reforms and some constructive changes. the paul ryan voucher approach is destructive of medicare. it will not survive. millions of americans will lose their benefits. but, there are ways to approach it. to reduce the cost of medical care, and still keep our promise to seniors across america. >> chris: par
what paul ryan proposed a few days ago. so that is a big difference. it made it easier for him to balance the budget by having lower levels of defense spending. would've been almost impossible to balance the budget over 10 years. >> what about what was put forth by senate democrats and house members? the increases that he wants or about $600 over 10 years. democrats want an increase and i'm sure republicans way for democrats to figure out where they are. democrats are talking about getting rid of tax breaks and taxes. limiting the values of certain tax breaks. that is what they are talking about right now. they want to get rid of the tax breaks and get rid of them. >> the paul ryan plan a party takes into account these rates approved by congress. >> yes, that is right. about $600 billion in new taxes over 10 years. it helps to balance the budget. >> any surprises from the senate budget committee markup yesterday? >> well, a little surprised that she was able to hold the line. ten republicans and democrats on the committee. but she could not afford to use a single one. she had b

is on capitol hill, martha. martha: it works both ways, mike. democrats clearly do not like the paul ryan house republican budget proposal. so what is their approach? >> reporter: well they are saying essentially that paul ryan is too extreme harsh. they continue calling for new tax revenue which we see in the patty murray budget blueprint. on budgetary issues, president obama talking to supporters last night sounded upbeat. >> when it comes to issues of the budget we've made progress in making sure that those at the very top are paying a greater share of what is required to run a government, fund base being research, move education forward. and so we've seen some progress. >> reporter: day three in a row, president obama coming to capitol hill today to meet with senate republicans and house democrats. democrats not liking so much some of the offers that he it making for a big deal and republicans want him to give up the idea of new taxes, martha. martha: boy, here we go. mike, thank you very much. bill: in meantime the 1st of april is the deadline for the senate to present a budget resolution
to the business of the day. you sit on the house budget committee, and you're chairman. paul ryan came out this week with the day before the president met with the republican caucus with his budget for 2014 which looks a lot like the budget for 2013 which looked a lot like the budget for 2012. >> except for -- >> bill: it's worse? >> it's worse. it's more cynical than the prior budgets because what it did was, they spent all last year campaigning against the affordable care act. and about slashing money out of medicare. >> that's been actually their mantra for two elections now. well, in the budget, he repeals the law, affordable care all of the provisions of the law, keeps the $700,000,000,000 worth of save savings, keeps the trillion dollars worth of taxes under affordable care act. >> that's what makes this budget come close to balancing in 10 years. so all of the things he campaigned against, he put in his budget. >> uh-huh. >> then said we are going to take the money out of medicare and we are going to tax you but we are not going to give you the benefit
conservatives they need to eliminate the education department, always good with this crowd. paul ryan wants to balance the budget in ten years. rand paul says let's balance the budget in five years. what we heard there was him saying that the party needed to be very different and he made an explicit appeal to the facebook generation. also something very different from the last couple of republican nominees. mitt romney and john mccain. on the topic of personal liberty, also a shocking story that is electrifying the political world this morning, senator rob portman of ohio announced in his home state papers this morning that he is giving up his opposition to gay marriages. this is right ahead of the supreme court oral arguments on march 26th and 27th. in the columbus dispatch today senator portman says his son came to him in 2011 and said he was gay. wasn't something he chose but he wanted his parents to know that. senator portman said he had always been against gay marriage because of his faith and tradition but this caused him to rethink it and he is proud of will and the way he handled it
with the republican senators and lunch with paul ryan and yesterday going over has said that he doesn't believe that the republicans clearly understood what he had on the table. because as the republicans continue to say if the president would present us with a budget and his view of entitlement cuts, then we could have a serious discussion and he has not done that. the president seems to suggests he understood that they clearly did not get what he had said before. >> i think that there's something to that. i'm struck when i meet people who say the president doesn't have a plan. >> rose: so why do you think that is? serious well meaning people don't believe the president has a plan. >> it's a mystery to me. you could go write on the whitehouse web page and find offers for the cpi, the medicare reforms, loopholes that we would close. i don't know, but -- >> rose: that's the plan you're talking about then. that's the president's complete plan. is it negotiable? >> the president has never said my way or the highway. he's looking for a solution adamist. what he has said he wants to balance the ap
was in a different position. you got to have a wisconsin mini primary, apparently, with paul ryan. walker notably would not pledge to serve a full second term. one more thing. all the 2016 speculation was not on the republican side this weekend. former white house adviser david plouffe weighed in on the presidential election at the 92nd street y. >> i'm not going to speak to what secretary of state clinton will or will not do. she is in both parties now. by far i think the most interesting candidate. probably the strongest candidate. >> there you go. his fellow delawarean probably doesn't like to hear that. but he probably knows that that's true. >>> finally, the inability to jump start the middle east peace process has been one of the president's bigger failures on foreign policy of the first term in office. though it's a failure that he didn't necessarily have a lot of control over. at the beginning of his first term, the president declared with great fanfare he wouldn't follow the lead of his predecessors presidents clinton and bush and wait until a second term to push for middle east peace. >
, borrowing more and spending more is not a path to prosperity. >> that was congressman paul ryan on the hill. pleased that democrats are bringing bunts budgets to the table. maryland congressman chris van holland is the ranking member on the house budget committee. he joins me now, congressman van holland. good afternoon to you. >> good afternoon to you, luke. >> i want to get your take on house republicans are panning the democratic budgets that will be voted on tomorrow. your budget, the black caucus budget, the progressive budget, various ones have no chance of becoming law. is there any worry that the idea that republicans are putting forward that our budget balances, our budget balances, a very good sound bite that can work in mid-term elections. whereas you guys' isn't balanced until about 2040. is there any worry that the message could take hold and cause problems for you in the 2014 mid-terms? >> no, luke, for this reason -- the republican budget, the ryan budget balances on the backs of middle income taxpayers. it balances by violating our commitment to our seniors, through the vouc
the paul ryan thing with the big asterisk and say -- >> what do you think? >> that's exactly the way you have to approach this. we do need -- first off, this issue is about 5, 10, 15 years from now, stablelizing the debt at less than 15% gdp and the essence getting entitlements under control in the out years. as part of that, you have to have tax reform and significant tax reform. and actually, simpson/bowles, a commission i served on, laid out a way to do it, got the tax rates down on the personal side to 9, 15 and 23% and the corporate to 26%. and you need to bring the corporate rate down to 24, 25, 26% and need to go to a territorial system. but you can't do that independent of the individual system, because if you have a huge gap between the top individual rate, say today it's at 42.5%, and if you took the corporate 25%, everybody started -- >> because then you have small business. small business got screwed at the expense of big businesses in the last tax bill. so you're right. so i -- look, i say, you're going to have big problems if you try to have a big personal and corporate tog

boehner and paul ryan say on this the president's right there's no immediate debt crisis, i understand what they are saying. i'm not taking it out of context, saying there's not a run on the banking system or foreigners pulling money out. i understand that. they are more or less getting ammunition to the president to say, what's the rush? the president said spending is not a problem. nancy pelosi said we don't have to address entitlements, and reid says, if we address entitlements, which we're not, we'll address medicare aid. do you know what i'm saying? we might have lost him. well, he got to hear part of the speech. the problem is, folks, we have a situation where if you ignore the problem, it goes away, or you don't even acknowledge the problem, there is no problem. my apologies to you for rattling on here, but this is the essence of this show. way too much money going out. not enough money coming in. when we come back, i think business guys just discovered their own wicked lizzie. not our liz, but elizabeth warren who turns out to be the devil who wants to hike the minimum wage a l
chairman paul ryan. most of that distinction was highlighted in the clip you just played. while both sides sort of maintain lower deficit numbers, they go about it in a different way. the democrats tried to vote raise new revenue. they struck the finance committee to come up with almost $1 trillion in tax reform package versus all the cuts on the spending side of the ledger on the house republican plan. so that is the debate we have been having for years and it is the debate we will keep having as these two budgets look to move to the course of their respective chambers next week. host: niels, what is new about what democrats are proposing? have we seen a lot of this comes from democrats before? guest: we're not talking about anything that is particularly novel. because we have not seen the senate to go through the formal process of drafting a budget resolution, holding a budget markup, and go to the floor with a budget resolution and pass a budget resolution in several years now, it is sort of putting pen to paper in a different way than we have seen the senate democrats do it lately. a l
, there's asterisks that said we can't predict we could even continue beyond this point. paul ryan is fond of saying this is the most predictable crisis america has ever faced. everyone, everyone, every man and woman and every -- in every seat from the most liberal democrat to the most conservative republican, every congressperson knows the economic destruction that awaits us if we choose to do nothing. folks have been asking all day, r. speaker, what's the there there in the paul ryan budget, in the house budget committee budget, what i hope before the april 15th deadline will be the law of the land, will be the american budget, the there there is that we shift direction from a pathway that will most certainly mean the end of opportunity for our children to a pathway that will mean more opportunity for our children than even you and i have had, mr. speaker. we are not in this chamber talking about numbers. we are in this chamber talking about people. and if we fail to act, the devastation, the destruction, is not going to be measured in red lines on a ledger. it's going to be measured in
